Welcome to Class Monet

Year 4 had a wonderful surprise to the start of the week when they were paid a visit by Nigel from Imagination Gaming. We enjoyed a session playing a variety of ‘problem solving, team building and strategy based games.’

The discussions taking part by each group was wonderful to hear!

 World Mental Health DayDay
As part of World Mental Health Day, Year 4 have taken part in a variety of activities to build upon their existing knowledge. We have looked at the meaning of Mental Health and have discussed that it is something that we all have. We also looked at how it might present itself in different people as well as different ways that we could improve our own MH through; exercise, eating a balanced diet, taking time out for mindfulness activities and, of course, talking to a trusted person.
Don”t to forget to “Get Talking!”

Inside / Outside. How we look and how we feel



Rabbit Ings

As part of our Explore ‘Who do you think you are?’ Year 4 spent the day at our local country park, Rabbit Ings. We had a great day pond dipping, investigating the local area and a mini beast hunt. Plus, the weather was perfect too!

We have been looking at paintings by the French Impressionist artist, Claude Monet. Using oil pastels and water colours we then had a go recreating our own versions 

Place Value fun through the 'The Nasty Game'!

More Year4s trying to out wit each other...

Welcome back to school, Year 4!

Huge congratulations from all at Summerfields to Katie Wilson in year 4. Katie was one of four winners from over 300 entries across Barnsley who entered Barnsley Rockley Rotary Club’s Art competition. The presentation evening was held at the Metrodome and was judged by Barnsley’s own artist Ashley Jackson .Congratulations Katie well deserved.

Multiplication Tables Check

This activity exactly mirrors the 'Multiplication Tables Check' that will be given to children at the end of Year 4. They are tested on their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12. There are twenty-five questions and children have six seconds to answer each question and three seconds between questions. The questions are generated randomly using the same rules as the 'Multiplication Tables Check' (see below).

Results can be downloaded and printed at the end of the test.

Home learning

Home learning - 20th April 

Good morning Year 4. Hope you are all well and having fun with your families. We are all missing you at school and hope to see you all very soon. I have made a padlet for us, on it, you can add comments or pictures so why not add what you have been up to. Just click on the link. 


Reading - I have found a reading calender, have a look at all the different activities and see how many you can do before the end of April. I will add a new one for May. 


Maths - Keep working on your Times Table Rockstars - get some rock music on and see how many you can get right before the song runs out. Mr. Marsh has added some White Rose maths things too to the Home Learning page so make sure you have a look at these.


Literacy - Think about when we have learnt about verbs and adverbs. Have a look at the Animal Town sheets can you complete the Sentences Challenge sheet? Have a go at the other sheets too. 


Science - I thought it would be fun to look at sound (sorry mums and dads!!). Have a look at how sounds are made and then see if you can make some sounds using a homemade musical instrument - I have included some photographs to give you some ideas. 


Enjoy xx

Good morning year 4. I thought you might like to have a go at writing a narrative, look at this and see how you go. Don't forget to email them into school, I would love to read them. Enjoy

What makes the world alive? Homework grid


This morning we have had taken part in a karate taster session - it was lots of fun!

How do our actions affect others?


After making our gingerbread, Kyle and Aaliyah dropped some off for the residents at Anchor Oakwood Grange care home.

We are learning a lot from the Victorians this half term and how their acts affected Britain and how it is still affecting our lives today. We have looked at Queen Victorian and what she was like and what she did. We have looked at the workhouses, colonisation, inventions and lots, lots more. 

This week we have been looking at Gingerbread. During the Victorian period, gingerbread was regularly eaten and enjoyed. We tried out the recipe and enjoyed eating the gingerbread we made as much as the Victorians! 

Making our gingerbread people

Reading buddies
As part of our explore this half term, we have joined up with class Africa and become their reading buddies. By reading with the F2 children and modelling reading to them we are developing their love of reading and developing friendships. 

Our first session was a getting to know you session

This is our fantastic display from all the work that we have completed during our Who Do You Think You Are? exploration

A day in the life of a miner at the National Coal Mining museum, Wakefield

Don't forget that Thursday 10th October is our trip to the Mining Museum as part of our Who Do You Think You Are? exploration. Children will need a warm coat, sensible footwear and a packed lunch. Stay tuned and we will tell you all about it once we have returned. 

Brass lesson 


Today is our second brass lesson. Today the children have been playing along to Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. They have been learning about how to look after their instruments and how to keep the valves clean and smooth. 

Digestive system 

Using a cream cracker, banana, orange juice and water we created a digestive system. We had lots of fun digesting the food and removing the waste from our stomach. 

Hello and welcome back Year 4. I am ready for a fantastic and fun year where we are going to learn lots and lots! Don't forget if you need anything or have any questions to come and find me and I will try to help.


Don't forget parents, there is a 'Meet the Teacher' meeting on Thursday 12th September. I am looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible. I understand that some people will not be able to attend the meeting so I will add the PowerPoint on here. Any questions, please come and see me.


Today we have had our first brass lesson - we have given the children their rental agreement for you to sign. Once this is returned to school, they will then be able to bring their instrument home to practise!!

Snow Day Homework

Task 1

I hope you have enjoyed some time playing in the snow.

As we missed World Book Day on Thursday I would like you to ask someone to take a photo of you reading your favourite book in an interesting place.  You can decide where this is.  Please bring a photo into school to show the rest of the class.


Task 2

I would also like you to do some writing to share with the class.


Imagine you are going to be trapped inside school because of the snow for 2 whole weeks.  Which 10 items would you bring with you to help you survive and why would you bring each item?


I look forward to hearing about your fun in the snow on Monday.

Miss Humphreys.
